The Pop Game

On the heels of the hit unscripted series, “The Rap Game,” Lifetime keys into the world of pop music this winter with, “The Pop Game” (#ThePopGame), premiering on Tuesday, February 21, at 10 PM ET/PT. The series won’t miss a note, following music industry icon Timbaland as he works with five aspiring young vocal artists, all vying to be the next big thing on the charts. Timbaland’s team of writers, producers and top celebrity guest artists including JoJo, Macy Gray, Nelly Furtado and Jordin Sparks, will assist the kids and their manager parents in challenges designed to teach and test the skills they will need to grace some of the world’s biggest stages.

Timbaland, a multi-platinum Grammy winning super-producer and artist, has stamped his indelible imprint on the music scene since the mid-1990s, having helped create career-defining hits for artists such as Aaliyah, Justin Timberlake, Missy Elliott, Destiny’s Child, Snoop Dogg, Kanye West, Drake, Katy Perry and Jay-Z, among others. From developing a distinct vocal style and image, to collaborating with other artists, maximizing vocal talent and handling their paces with rigorous choreography, Timbaland will teach these young artists how to take command of the audience, but only one will walk away with a record contract with his label, Mosely Music Group.

Produced by Intuitive Entertainment, “The Pop Game” is executive produced by Kevin Dill and Mechelle Collins, and EP/Showrunner Danny Salles. Grammy and Emmy award winner, Queen Latifah and her partner, Shakim Compere will executive produce under the Flavor Unit umbrella along with Grammy winner and producer, Jermaine Dupri, and Timbaland on the series.

Tink – Million

The combination of Timbaland & Aaliyah was something beyond a dynamic duo–these two creators developed a sound that to this very day, cannot be duplicated or even remotely paralleled.

Timbaland’s distinguished sound has allowed him to sustain for over 20 years within this business, but he was never quite able to recreate a similar vibe to that of which he & our fallen angel constructed–that is, until he came across Chicago femcee, Tink.

After debuting with her first two hits, Around The Clock featuring The Breakfast Club’s Charlamange Tha God, & Ratchet Commandements, Tink was able to breakthrough & make noise as a new fresh act on the Hip-Hop scene.

Today, she & Timbaland debut a new single, Million, which will serve as the first pulled from her forthcoming debut album. With direct access to Aaliyah’s vocals through her mentor, Tink is sure shake things up with this new release.

Comment below with your thoughts on the record & if you aren’t doing so already, #ThinkTINK.

For the past 5 years, female rap has been represented almost solely by the likes of Nicki Minaj–not to say that Young Money’s First Lady doesn’t hold it down, but why hasn’t anyone else stepped up to assume throne?

Late last year, Timbaland came across a sound so vintage that it takes you back to a period in time of Hip-Hop we all like to refer to as “The Golden Age”. This era laid the foundation for what the culture has evolved into today. Real-life experiences, originality, & flavor are the key elements of what truly created this sound–it was the voice of the people.. the voice of the culture.

Rick Ross recuited Jay-Z for his latest LP release, Hood Billionaire, & got people out of their seats yet again by bringing together two of Hip-Hop’s most influential figures to produce something pivotal to the masses. Of course spectators had much to say; some loved it, some hated it, some thought the beat was (more…)
